    Have to wonder if they continued the curves through out the building or just distorted the outer layer/rooms. Either way, I would not have liked to build it.

    This is the result of allowing young architects access to a cad program it becomes a civil and structural engineers nightmare. I know of a building in Kuwait that we fought tooth and toenails with the owner and his so called Architectual firm who not only wanted the outside of the building to have a twist but the core structure to take a 90 twist as well we won, they had to settle for the outside making the twist. But anything like this wavy of curved building is an absolute waste of floor space due to the required added structure required to achieve the look
